Default Re: So when would my car actually have been made?

The best you can do is go through the Judging Standards and Plucks's frame evolution study and start to narrow it down based off of a bunch of little things here and there.

http://www.plucks329s.org/frame.htm

Remember that a lot has happened to these cars in the past 90 years and it is very hard to find unmolested examples. I'd guess that the engine is a replacement put in sometime in the car's history. You could try lifting the body to see if a frame number is visible which would give you the original engine number.
